Wanna Know How Much Judas Priest, In Flames, Atreyu, Black Label Society, Testament and Other Bands Earn to Play Shows?


Judas Priest Saxon 2015 TourThe summer touring season is upon us and, as usual, The PRP is here to sort through the Boxscore report for all relevant metal artists showing what they earn to play shows. This one’s a doozy! The PRP has numbers from TONS of bands, ranging from KISS to Yob and everything in between, so make sure you check out the full list. We’ve posted a few highlights below.

As usual, note that these numbers are not a wholly accurate reflection of how much money these artists/festivals take home. After the ticket numbers are in, the bands still need to pay their crew and travel expenses, share a cut with the promoter, pay their manager and booking agent, etc. On the other side of it, the numbers also don’t include any money earned from merch sales. But these Boxscore reports do provide a general idea of the earning power of each of these bands, especially relative to one another.
